Perspective
VOCABULARY
Perspective - Creating the Illusion of depth on a two-dimensional
surface.
Line - A row of dots/points in a continuous strand
Types of Line - Horizontal
Vertical
Orthogonal
Parallel Lines – Lines that never intersect or overlap
Perpendicular Lines – Lines that meet at a 90-degree angle
Horizon Line – The line that separates the ground from the sky
Vanishing Point - A point on the horizon line that all other
lines go back to.
TYPES OF PERSPECTIVE
Linear – Making lines appear to recede in the distance. Using
depth to show the illusion of perspective.
Atmospheric – Using a haze effect to create a
nature perspective. It is achieved by using less
focus.
Perspective dates back to the early 5th
century B.C. in ancient Greece.

LINEAR PERSPECTIVE
One Point
Perspective
All the lines & objects go
back to ONE point on the
horizon line.
The ONLY lines you can
use are:
• Horizontal lines
• Vertical lines
• Orthogonal Lines /
Vanishing Point lines
• To draw in one point perspective,
draw a horizon line and draw a
vanishing point anywhere on the
horizon.
• All lines travel to the vanishing point
in both these drawings.
• Distant figures appear smaller but
have the same shape and proportions
as they would close up.
LINEAR PERSPECTIVE
Two Point
Perspective
All the lines & objects go
back to TWO points on the
horizon line.
The ONLY lines you can use are:
•Vertical lines
• Orthogonal Lines / Vanishing Point lines
LINEAR PERSPECTIVE
Three Point
Perspective
The ONLY lines you can
use are:
•Orthogonal Lines /
Vanishing Point lines
All the lines & objects
go back to Three points.
Two on the horizon line
and one above or
below the horizon line.
